We thank Eva and her twin sister Joy (our intermediary) copiously for making this possible! Enjoy! 😀
11. What has changed in your way of acting since you’ve started your career?
Eva Green: Well, I’m older so I’ve lived more and consequently can relate to more of the “given circumstances” that may arise in the film…
12. Do you think that acting in a different language changes your process? Do you feel like acting in English is harder than in French? Or does it help you because you feel like a different person and it helps you escape your personality?
Eva Green: Most of my films have been in English and I so love the language that I’ve kind of adopted it as my own… it feels like me.
13. When you’re playing a character who can’t communicate verbally in “The Salvation“, what challenges does this pose for you as an actor? Do you find that you must change the emphasis on different aspects of your performance, such as body language, in ways that you wouldn’t in a role where you can be dependent on dialogue to convey emotion?
Eva Green: It was very challenging to play a mute character in The Salvation because it forces you to be very focused and filled emotionally so that your body language is readable.
14. Recently, trivias of you having a Directing degree in New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts and an acting polishing course with London’s Webber Douglas Academy have been popping up everywhere (specifically on your imdb.com page and on your Wikipedia page), is there any truth to this? Could you take us through your academic endeavours?
Eva Green: I have no idea where this rumour comes from, though I wish I had gone to Tisch School in New York, it just isn’t true… I did a workshop at Webber Douglas, that’s true.
15. You’ve captured a huge geek/comic book fan base thanks to your San Diego Comic-Con appearance because of “300: Rise of an Empire” and, consequently, “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For“. There have been suggestions among this fan base that they would want you to play a female Sith Lord in the upcoming “Star Wars” sequels. What can you say about this? Have you gotten a call from J.J. Abrams?
Eva Green: No, none of it is true… just internet bullshit…
“Eva, thanks again for your time.
Our warmest wishes

IFC Films announced today from the Cannes Film Festival that the company has acquired all North American rights to Kristian Levring’s Western “The Salvation.”
Set in 1870s America, the story begins when settler named Jon kills his family’s murderer, which unleashes the fury of notorious gang leader Delarue. Betrayed by his corrupt and cowardly community, the peaceful pioneer must turn vengeful hunter, slay the outlaws, and cleanse the town’s black heart.
The film, with a screenplay by Levring and Anders Thomas Jensen, stars Mads Mikkelsen as the lead character Jon, with the rest of the cast rounded out by Eva Green, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Eric Cantona, Mikael Persbrandt, Jonathan Pryce and Douglas Henshall. “Kristian Levring has assembled an incredible cast and created a classic Western that keeps you on the edge of your seat,” said President of Sundance Selects/IFC Films Jonathan Sehring.
“The Salvation” was produced by Sisse Graum Jørgensen, and executive produced by Peter Aalbæk Jensen and Peter Garde. The film had its world premiere at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival in the Out of Competition Midnight section. The rights were acquired from Danish company TrustNordick and the deal was negotiated between Susan Wendt, Head of Sales from TrustNordisk and Arianna Bocco, SVP of Acquisitions from Sundance Selects/IFC Films.
